Defending Mr. Green Helmet

Mr. Green Helmet is the subject of an AP story defending his role as a "civil defense worker." LGF posted an initial commentary, well worth reading, refuting the AP story's claims. But EU Referendum is hosting a work—in—progress report more definitvely exposing what lies behind what appears to be rather a lame attempt by the MSM to repair the coinsiderable damage done to the credibility of the major news agencies.

Meanwhile, some of the systemic anti—Israel bias is being shown to make terrific business sense, assuming this report posted on LGF is based on fact. If AP and Reuters wish to stanch theoutward flow oif credibility from their reporting, they need to adopt much more transparency, not only about the sources of their news reporting, but also about the financial incentives they have.
